MoDOT's Motorist Assist turns 20 years old

The Missouri Department of Transportation is celebrating the 20th anniversary of Motorist Assist, which helps stranded drivers on Missouri's roads and highways. 

Last year Motorist Assist handled around 37,000 incidents, including more than 8,000 abandoned vehicles, 7,700 mechanical repairs and around 5,500 tire changes. 

A typical Motorist Assist driver will cover about 200 miles per shift. Primary duties include securing the scene, assisting emergency personal, and taking care of the stranded drivers. 

Drivers who have been helped by Motorist Assist can thank the operators in person tonight as MoDOT hosts an open house on from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Motorist Assist station at 669 Salt Mill Road, in Chesterfield.
